Best Bangkok Markets - To Enjoy Sensational Shopping Experiences

Amidst the dazzling skyscrapers in the city of Bangkok, there are gems of priceless allurement, that tempt those who are looking for perfect bargain deals with a dizzying array of merchandise. If you wish to enjoy a truly marvellous shopping spree in Bangkok, make sure you visit the markets listed below.


Chatuchak Weekend Market

The iconic Chatuchak Weekend Market is one of the most popular market places in Bangkok, visited by countless numbers of locals and tourists alike. This market that sells a staggering range of products in over 15,000 stalls is considered to be one of the largest flea markets in the world. You will certainly need to get yourself a map to navigate through the maze of shops here. On each day the market is in operation, approximately 200,000 people are estimated to visit it. Here in Chatuchak Weekend Market you will find wooden furniture, statues of Buddha, exotic soaps, trendy clothing, ceramic items and even pet dogs! The market is segregated into different sections to make it easy for visitors to shop at the spots that sell that interest them.

Keep in mind that the intense heat of the city will wear you out quite easily here, so try to go there before noon as most of the shops here open around 10.00 a.m. You will be able to escape large crowds too when you shop in the morning. The Chatchak Weekend Market operates every Saturday and Sunday.


JJ Green Night Market

Located on the same road that leads to the Chatuchak Weekend Market, the JJ Green Night Market provides a truly enjoyable shopping experience at night. It's the place to visit in the city if you love all things retro. There is a range of vinyl CDs, old car models, retro cameras, antiques and collectibles as well as extremely cheap second hand clothes sold at this market. You can expect the vendors to succumb to the temptation of bargaining here, but in most cases bargaining will not even be necessary as the sellers will start off by quoting a very low price.

When you are here be sure to visit places such as Stair by Me and Clock Tower to be refreshed during the shopping spree. The market can be visited between 5:00 p.m. to midnight everyday between Thursday and Sunday. If you are staying at a Bangkok 5 star hotel such as the centrally located Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort you will be able to visit this market with convenience throughout your stay.


Pak Klong Talat Flower Market

The stunning Pak Klong Talad Market is a gloriously beautiful place you should definitely visit in Bangkok. If you wish to buy special floral arrangements for a ceremony or a simple bunch of exquisite blooms to gift a special someone, the Pak Klong Talad Market is the place to go to. The market which is located just south of Wat Pho is open 24 hours but it's at its most vibrant form after the late hours of midnight. Local blooms such as jasmines, chrysanthemums, roses and orchids as well as imported flowers such as tulips, snapdragons and iris can be bought here.
